Dark Horse Comics had three new Star Wars releases today.

Agent of the Empire: Hard Targets #5 (of 5)

Everyone—including Boba Fett—is after the young Count Dooku. As Cross and the Count’s loyal security guard attempt to whisk the boy to safety, they are surrounded by enemies! In the past, Cross had the power and authority of the Empire behind him. Now he has nothing but his fists!

Writer: John Ostrander
Penciller: Davidé Fabbri
Inker: Christian Dalla Vecchia
Colorist: Wes Dzioba
Cover Artist: Stéphane Roux

Dawn of the Jedi: Prisoner of Bogan #3 (of 5)

Xesh and Daegen Lok are on a mission to build Forcesabers—a weapon that Lok knows will take him closer to his vision of being leader of the Je’daii. But the Je’daii Rangers are on the pair’s trail, and this first encounter between the Je’daii and the prisoners of Bogan will carry heavy consequences!

Writer: John Ostrander
Penciller: Jan Duursema
Inker: Dan Parsons, Victor Llamas, Mark Pennington
Colorist: Wes Dzioba
Cover Artist: David Michael Beck

Star Wars #1 (3rd printing)

Dark Horse goes back to press for a 3rd printing, this time with the Alex Ross art and only the Star Wars logo on the cover.

This is Star Wars as you remember it . . . and as you have never seen it before! We’re taking you back to those heady, adventure-filled days following the destruction of the Death Star—when the Empire ruled, the Rebels were on the run, and the galaxy was a dangerous place where anything might happen!

Writer: Brian Wood
Artist: Carlos D’Anda
Colorist: Gabe Eltaeb
Cover Artist: Alex Ross

So, as Michael put it, “We’d be crazy to say ‘no’.” Continue Reading Our Interview with Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff on ‘The Last Jedi’…
